      FOX 31 caught up with the Georgia State Patrol Post 40 to see how Memorial Day weekend was in this area.

      One GSP trooper told us it was a very busy weekend for them as they arrested 14 people since Friday for DUIs just in this area.

      Across the state, there were 17 fatalities which the trooper said was an alarming number. One of those fatalities was here in Worth County and the trooper we spoke to was the one who responded.

      He said the fatality was caused by a woman failing to stop at a stop sign and although this is a tragic event, he hopes others learn a lesson.
